(Note that you have probably used texconfig-sys, not texconfig, and this
is indeed what should be used for site-wide changes by the local admin.
texconfig now only writes to $HOME/.texmf-config.)

It is not texconfig which is at fault: texconfig only calls "fmtutil --edit".
So it is fmtutil which needs to be hacked for Debian. And texconfig
probably needs an upstream change. Or at least we need to check whether
it also calls fmtutil on a system-wide fmtutil.cnf when the
Debian-specific hack to force fmtutil-sys is removed from fmtutil.
